Just last month, Bishop Eddie Long was online defending his weight loss saying it was his new eating lifestyle that caused the changes in his appearance.

Now, the Christian Post is reporting that megachurch pastor Bishop Eddie Long, pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia has confirmed that he is suffering from a “health challenge” unrelated to his new vegan diet that caused drastic weight loss and he is believing God for deliverance.

Founder of Obnoxioustv’s blog William McCray III, reported Friday that he was informed by a close friend of the bishop and an alleged verified member of Long’s church, that the pastor has an unspecified gastro-intestinal cancer that has already progressed to stage 4.

Bishop Long released a statement which in part reads, “I am recovering from a health challenge that I trust God to deliver me from. It is unrelated to the eating for life diet consisting of mostly raw vegetables that I am continuing, as part of a holistic approach to good health.” Additionally he added, “At this time my family and I are requesting that you respect our privacy. I truly appreciate your prayers and support for me, my loved ones and my beloved New Birth Church Family.”
